Astros’ Triple-A to be in Fresno in 2015
The Astros will have their Triple-A affiliate in Fresno, Calif., next season, the Grizzlies announced via Twitter.
Fresno, which had been partnered with the San Francisco Giants, will replace Oklahoma City, which had served as the Astros’ Triple-A affiliate the previous four years. The Dodgers bought a stake in Oklahoma City and will move their Triple-A operations there.
The Grizzlies play at Chukchansi Park in downtown Fresno. The park, which opened in 2002, seats 12,500 fans and features a semi-irregular field shape with dimensions measuring 324 feet down the left field line, 385 in left center, 400 in center field and 335 to the right field foul pole.
Fresno is in the PCL Northern division with Reno, Sacramento and Tacoma.
